Sound like a dream come true? It’s not. Make study abroad your reality by following these simple steps:
First, if you are eligible for a Federal Pell-Grant, apply for the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship. Since 2001, more than 28,000 students of “high financial need” have received grants of up to $5,000 from the U.S. Department of State.
The application for spring 2020 opens in mid-August 2019.
Once you have applied for the Gilman, fill in the Scholarships & Grants portion of your CIEE program application. Anyone submitting a qualified Gilman application, REGARDLESS of whether they receive a Gilman award, is eligible for the following:
- CIEE Go Global Grant worth up to $2,500 for a semester program
- CIEE GAIN Travel Grant worth up to $1,500
Yes, you read that right - submitting a qualified application for a Gilman qualifies you for up to $4,000 from CIEE!
Your need-based CIEE Scholarships and Grants application is due by October 15.
Total potential awards? A whopping $9,000 toward an incredible spring ’20 abroad.
Brandon W. from Denison University in Ohio ended up spending a semester studying abroad in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic thanks to these three steps.
“The CIEE Gilman Grant did two great things for me: one it encouraged me to apply for the Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship, which helped fund my education abroad. The money from that grant was CRUCIAL to me having money once I got abroad. I realized paying for my program wasn’t enough, I also needed to budget money for on-site.”
Two simple applications can earn you up to $9,000 in grants to participate in one of CIEE’s 200 programs in 50+ countries. Don’t miss this opportunity for support that can make your dreams of a life-changing adventure abroad a reality.
